Tire Pump Tradesmen

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*
A poorly executed image that meets the challenge.
Can I begin by echoing your commenter Deve and welcome you to DPC. One thing about DPC as you have found with this entry, is that they are not very tolerant of technical flaws such as poor focus, camera shake etc., and this is reflected by your own comments and in your low score.
You say you were in motion as you were taking the image? If that is the case, I strongly advise you to stop and take your time over your next opportunity! Unless you were speeding by even at 1/500s you should have got a sharper result than this, but it may be the equivalent of camera shake but I think the problem is more likely to be poor focus. Either way the end result is far from perfect. You also have some flare in the right of the frame which I can't logically account for unless you were shooting through a window?
Having said everything I have which all sounds rather negative I do like your composition with the main subject at the bottom of the frame. The lighting is such that it emphasises the tradesmans vehicle with his company name on so towards that end it adds to the challenge theme.
I'm sorry you have got off to a lowly start but I hope you will have learnt from your efforts how important the technicalities are in getting a quality image. I wish you well with all your future entries, Sid
